From Issue


The paper discusses issues related to building up and enhancing the communicative skills of children and their relationship with the specific socio-cultural environment of nursery and primary schools. Emphasis is laid on the importance of developing children’s linguistic competence by providing favourable conditions. This allows desirable modes of verbal and non-verbal behaviour to be exemplified and expressed, and therefore allows interaction to take place.
